MP3: Dani Shivers - "Witch" (Los Macuanos Afilan El Cuchillo Remix)
It’s a little early to be thinking about Halloween playlists but ruidoson primers Los Macuanos have provided us with the first must-have mix of the season. The Tijuana-based trio has unveiled (via Matinee as Hell) a profoundly dark, almost evil remix for Dani Shivers’ already eerie single, “Witch.” Earlier this year we pointed out this track disclosed Shivers' nostalgic affinity for sinister landscapes and aesthetics, but Los Macuanos go after that witch like a three-member sect on a bloody witch hunt. There’s a lot of good, dark-edged music out there (Dave Rata, Mueran Humanos, etc), but there’s nothing as infernal as a “cumbia rebajada.” This “Los Macuanos Afilan El Cuchillo Remix” is a creepy crawler and their best remix since that speaker-detonator Fito Olivares mix titled “El Ruidoson de la Culebra.” Los Macuanos and Dani Shivers are currently working on their debut albums, both among Club Fonograma's most anticipated records for the rest of the year.
